I developed mod_accel module.
Documentation in Russain only but English translation was started:

It allows reverse-proxing only.
It frees backend as soon as possible. mod_proxy can keep busy backend
with slow client, i.e, using mod_proxy to accelerate backend is not
worked with slow clients .
It can use busy locks and limit number of connection to backend.
It implements primitive fault-tolerance via DNS-balanced backends.
It can to cache content with some cookie and ignore another.
It can ignore Pragma: no-cache and Authorization.
You can specify variuos buffer sizes.
It buffers POST body.
It logs its state.

I think it can not work in Win32. Probably under Cygwin only.

mod_proxy is very ancient module and it's hard to maintain it.
